The Run up to the Cup: 2010 World Cup Qualifying
2010 World Cup Qualifying
It's never too early to talk about the World Cup and now that qualifying is well-underway I'm curious to see who's following it. I know we have a lot of soccer/futbol fans on this site so I want to see yall's home country is doing and if there are other countries you follow and root for.
Obviously I follow the U.S. and I'm hoping for a better result than the 2006 WC as our only bright spot was the 1-1 tie to eventual champ Italy. So far the U.S. is 1-0-1 in qualifying after rallying from down 0-2 to El Salvador to earn 1 point with a 2-2 tie. We plat Trinidad and Tobago tonight.
The other main country I root for is Argentina who sits at 5-2-4 in qualifying and I'm still pissed over the quarter final loss to Germany in the last WC. I really thought they were going to take the Cup and I still can't believe the coach had them play strictly defensively in the last 10 minutes when they were controlling possession and playing much of the game on the German side. That allowed the late game tying goal.
So who's looking good so far and who isn't?
